Should ESPN "Do More for Dogs"?

Michael Vick sure is getting a lot of air-time these days (and endorsements).

One person thinks ESPN (and, presumably, other networks that cover the quarterback) should promote better treatment of dogs since they are spending so many minutes talking about Vick.

I watch or listen to ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike in the Morning every day it’s on and today is no exception. Just a minute ago they were talking about Vick and the Eagles. It would be great if they could get their vaunted research department (Russel Baxter if you follow the show) to dig up a dog-related stat and share that every time they mention Vick. A very simple thing to do and it would go a long way to reaching an audience that hasn’t been as sensitive to the dog issues that we, as a society, have created in our country.

Now we’re not against dogs or the human treatment of animals or anything along those lines. But that is a patently absurd suggestion.
